So, the importance of the Sun in astrology is quite high. And this is why the consideration of the Sun’s placement is essential during the analysis of the birth chart.

According to Vedic astrology, the Sun is the ruler of the 5th house, which is Leo. In other words, the Sun is the lord of the 5th house as well, while the Sun is exalted in Aries. Suppose the transiting Sun is at 10 degrees in the sign Aries. In that case, the Sun is favourable as it is in a highly exalted state. On the other end, it becomes subdued if it is at 10 degrees in the sign Libra.

However, the Sun governs the nakshatra (constellation) too. Any guesses? It’s Kritika Nakshatra in Aries sign, Uttara Phalguni in Virgo sign, and Uttarashadha in Capricorn sign.
